Tasting Notes by jmc
Drank neat with a glass of water on the side. Floral nose with vanilla and a slight hint of apples. I disagree with some of the comments I've seen here comparing the nose to soap and cleaning supplies. I noticed a slight burn going down, so the alcohol flavor is prevalent, but not too overwhelming. I tasted pears, apples again, and oak. It had a nice spiciness and a nutty finish which I liked. Although there wasn't anything spectacular to note, this is still a solid single malt Scotch and is something I could come back to given its widespread availability and low price point.
